The Atlantic is a big scooter with a big engine and a big heart. The single cylinder thumps away pleasingly and at higher revs it pulls well and is very smooth, initial take off is a little sluggish (compared with the more refined TMAX for example). Returns 55mpg whatever you do with it and fine for long rides with wide comfy sadle and good weather protection. Equipment levels are excellent, better than I've seen on any other scooter with trip computer, revs, hazard warning lights, space for a radio (speaker holes are there but not fitted on mine), 12v socket etc. You'd have thought that the great big bulge at the back was a boot, but its not- a real missed opportunity in my view. It will happily sit at 85mpg without bother, in all a very capable machine. The only problem I've had a was a small fire on the fusebox where a wire had melted, that was quickly replaced and since then its been going fine. Fit a Tucano leg cover for £80 and you are well set for the winter commute too. They are a rare site on the roads and you can pick them up for bargain basement money. My 2003 reg with 14k on the clock was a snip at £800, less than half what a TMAX would set you back, and almost steps up the mark.
